For those of you who have been praying, and for the tremendous love and support you have given our family as we have walked through months of cancer diagnosis and treatment with Daddy, THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Your prayers have been felt and heard. The Lord is bringing healing!!!!!!
"Behold, all they that were incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with thee shall perish.
Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, even them that contended with thee: they that war against thee shall be as nothing, and as a thing of nought.
For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee."
These are the verses the Lord gave Daddy during this cancer ordeal, and they have been very TRUE.
The last bone scan came back clear, with no new lesions! This was a first!!!! The existing lesions are all healing or healed, and he is able to use his hands and right arm again, as well as being able to get around without a wheelchair. As of yesterday, he is finished with regular chemo treatments and will now remain on a maintenance dosage. Thank you for your continued prayers as the journey continues! He is steadily improving and gaining strength. God is faithful. He has been very near, more than ever before, through the storm and darkness and pain. He does ALL things well!

I am so thankful for God's faithfulness. In every situation, He is here. Be still and know Him. This is LIFE! Knowing Him! Daddy's health is more stable and he is still undergoing chemo. Thank you all for your prayers!!! God is working through them!

Thank y'all so much for all your prayers for Clark recently! At his last appointment they discovered several more lesions on his bones, and found that one of them was preventing his broken arm from healing.
Today he started chemo and radiation pinpointing the main lesions on his knee and shoulder. Please pray that this will kill the cancer cells, and that he will not have the usual side effects of these traditional treatments.

because not much has changed. The cancer Daddy has is rare- about 150 cases a year- so there is not a lot of information to guide decisions. There are treatments that look promising, and choosing which way to go is where we are. Meanwhile, Daddy is stable, looking to God for the answers, and walking out what faith really is: moment by moment dependence on God. God is here, IN the waiting, and more and more I see that that is the point. Knowing God!
"He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty." ~Psalm 91:1

God is faithfully leading us, not in a "Here is the whole big picture" way, but one step at a time. (Oh wait, that's how He tends to do things, huh?) He has led us to a doctor who is familiar with cases like Daddy's, and who has given us more information and a better working plan than we've had thus far. Praise God! We are confident that God will continue to show Himself faithful, as He always has! Thank you for your prayers!

What is there to say when there are more questions than answers? I know many of you want to stay updated so you will to know how to pray, and that means so much to us right now!
Believe it or not, we really do not know much more than the last time I posted. There have been more tests and more appointments, more lesions and more damage, but no more answers. The doctors are puzzled, but God is not!
So, our specific prayer requests are:
~Clear direction for the next step
I personally am very comforted and held by God in the middle of this storm, and have never found him to be so REAL and near. He has not brought us this far to leave us now, and He knows exactly what the next step is.
"Ye shall not need to fight in this battle:
set yourselves, stand ye still,
and see the salvation of the LORD..."
~II Chronicles 20:17
Thank you for praying, believing He is hearing and answering!
